    Smile Hello from Oakhurst near Yosemite Nat'l Park!

    Hi to all! I'm a quilter from a small town near the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. I absolutely love MSQC and have learned so much from their video's.

    I'm a retired nurse, happy wife, Mom of two adult kiddo's and have 3 granddaughter's ( 3, 1 and 1) so we have lot's of pink around here . Life is grand!

    I'm also a lampwork bead artist which mean I take rods of colored glass, pass them thru a welding torch onto a mandrel and make glass beads. I fire them and then make jewelry which I sell at craft fairs. When I am not making beads and jewlery I make quilts. My Passion is about 50/50 beads and quilts!!

    I have a Bernina QEE named Nana and Featherweight named Daisy.

    I've been quilting for just over a year now with our church quilt ministry twice a month and daily for myself at home. I say I am a beginner, but my quilting buddies say I am intermediate. I LOVE learning new things and techniques, and making new quilter friends!!

    Welcome! Yosemite is absolutely gorgeous. We live about 2 hours from there and keep talking we need to go back. I know this is a quilting forum but would love to see posts of your beadwork.

    Hi Nonnie and welcome to the forum. It sounds like you are enjoying your retirement to the max. Glad to have you join us....visit often and please post pictures of your quilts and beading. In the early 70's I worked as a costume beader in Las Vegas. I loved the work. Barb
